    I got the one that came from a dodge and was extremely disappointed with the quality of the cover. The first time I put it on the car I ended up with light scratches over the trunk. So I'm looking for a aftermarket cover which do you guys recommend.

    go to california car cover website, got the plushweave for my kitty, use the noah for my 70 hemi challenger..
    noah is more rigid but soft inside, wont scratch paint.. great for dust and can be used outdoor, good for if you need to cover outdoors ever at a show or something.. plushweave is cotton and flannel thick and prohibits dings and very nice.. indoor use only... not cheap but have had the best luck with these covers and have great warranty!!!

    I've used California Car Cover on my cars for about 10 years. They fit great and protect the car from dust and water. I recommend either Noah or Stormweave.

    I bought the California Car Cover plush weave cotton flannel and it is awesome. Great fit, and it doesn't weigh a ton...

    I think the OE cover is the best and has the shark fin fit also.

    California Car covers. Have them on all my "fun" cars. Always get the Dust Top since may cars are garaged.

    Not to be negative. I would not put any kind of car cover on any of my vehicles (especially something like a Hellcat). Now this of course doesn't apply if for some reason you have to park your car outside over-night - then I could see using a car cover for long term storage.

    If you keep your beast garaged at night (like I'm sure most us do) then do yourself a favor and buy some good quality plush micro-fiber towels with a good water-less spray cleaner. I do not drive my Hellcat daily (maybe 2 or 3 times a month). So when I park it I wipe it down using the soft micro-fiber towel misted with with water-less spray cleaner. It takes literally 5-10 minutes top's to make your car look like new. I then re-wipe it down once or maybe twice a week while it's parked so it maintains that new clean and polished look. Most of the hi-quality water-less spray cleaners (I use Pinnacle) have polymers that help to resist dust or pollen from sticking to your paint. And for the most sake it really works.

    Another reason car covers are iffy - if you use it regularly you are going to scratch your paint or worse just by putting it on and removing it (not matter how careful you are or how hi-quality the car cover is)
